that conversation in the context of the three-month debt ceiling deals. if we are going talk entitlements, is there room to push on the entitlements and suggest a larger social safety net, things like providing opportunities for poor children beginning to close the wealth gap is a priority. >> raise the health care law. i think it's very important to remember that law isn't fully operational, yet. there is -- yes, exactly. there's an enormous amount of work to do. there's a lot of resistance in the states. that's going to be a struggle. >> one piece of that is in 1997 we did a balanced budget deal. one thing that happened when that period of republicans and democrats came together was step back and as part of consolidating the budget, they shift resources. that was the deal. it was a deficit reduction deal. one thing it created was a children's health program. it's functioning today. it isn't the case of periods of deficit consolidation. it's not just cutting and grinding these things out. how to run a smarter government and run things into resources we need. they have to be willing to do

$400,000 instead of $250,000. but why didn't you deal with the debt ceiling now why didn't you just take us over the cliff and then surely the republicans would have folded. which has not necessarily been the case. which leads to the heighten the contradictions liberal. the radicals wanted nixon to will elected because that would heighten the contradiction. if we would have just gone over the cliff, it would have created this economic disaster, and then people would have seen how extreme and out of touch these republicans are. well, maybe. if only we would have minted the platinum coin then surely people would have rallied around the president. but it doesn't really work like that. these outcomes are going to be sub-optimal like mick jagger said. >> jennifer: i loved your columns on this anybody who has served and had to negotiate realizes that you can't always get what you want. at least half of loaf is still half a loaf, but if you don't get any of the loaf you go hungry, but i do understand the argument on the left that it's important for those voices to be l

was not giving in to that. but at the time, the debt ceiling story had not been fully told. at the beginning of that fight, the poll was something like -- he asked the public, should the debt ceiling be raised? 85-15 against. the president was really on the wrong side. by the end of it, it had evened out in the polls and republicans ended up being blamed more so. and the economy was also in a more fragile position than it even is now. the president and people around him were much worried about what a default might do in terms of a financial crisis here and abroad. fast forward to now, and i think the president won the message debate. he convinced the public that playing, you know, hostage-taking with the debt ceiling was the wrong thing to do, and he also now has the business community, all of those people watching the vix who don't want to go through that again. so he's in a much stronger position now to take back the stance that he felt back then. circumstances have made it easier for him to play this game of chicken and actually, at least, win for the next three months. >> even that is fa

, president reagan, president clinton, all signed a debt deal that were contingent on raising the debt ceiling. you yourself have done that. three times those were related to budget reduction maneuvers. what chuck and i and many are curious on is your adamant desire not to negotiate when that seems to conflict with the entire history in the modern american presidents with the debt ceiling and your own debt ceiling, and doesn't that suggest that we are going to go into a default situation because nobody is talking about how to resolve this. >> no, major, i think if you look at the history, getting votes for the debt ceiling is always difficult. and budgets in this town are always difficult. i went through this just last year. but what's different is we never saw a situation, as we saw last year, in which certain groups in congress took such an absolutist position, that we came within a few days of defaulting. and the fact of the matter is that we have never seen the debt ceiling used in this fashion, where the notion was, you know what, we might default unless we get 100% of what we want. that

're going to give a three-month reprieve to dealing with the debt ceiling, we're going to temporarily extend this limit. what do you think happened there and are you in favor -- what do you think was the ideology behind that? >> i think the ideology was ideology. i think within the republican party and within congress, it seems like the issues are not the issues anymore. the fight is the issue. i think republicans have understood that in this environment, hopefully that, like mayors do, we look at solving problems. and right now, the environment is just not good to have that kind of discussion. we saw it with the fiscal cliff discussion. we saw when you get to last-second discussions, good decisions aren't made and really nobody wins in those because then you have to sort out what happened. i think the republicans are saying, listen, let's have a cooling-off period, let's figure out how we want to approach this. let's work on solutions. that's what mayors do all day long. we work on solutions. we get frustrated when the ideology becomes the bigger issue than solving these problems. we'd love

about the confirmation hearing issues and then the fiscal, the debt ceiling which is fast approaching as well. >> definitely that dance card is getting filled up pretty quickly so early in the year and he hasn't even been inaugurated. also in that article, senator marco rubio preparing his own version of the d.r.e.a.m. act. he discussed how republicans could face some pushback from latinos because of their stance on immigration reform. he said this, quote. we are going to have a struggle speaking to a whole segment of the population about our principles of limited government and free enterprise if they think we don't want them here, alluding to those who might benefit from the d.r.e.a.m. act. so republicans have their own pr campaign to conduct with latinos on immigration reform, but how is the president going to combat republicans who want to see a more piece meal approach as we move forward here? >> reporter: i think we've seen the way the president has handled other recent challenges from his republican opposition when you consider just the fiscal cliff hanger as it were with campa
